    We are staying at the Bay Lake Tower next spring. I heard it is amazing to watch the Wishes fireworks from the rooftop but I heard I may have to make reservations? How do we watch the fireworks from the rooftop?


    Elizabeth, you have asked about one of my favorite topics!

    The view from the 16th story observation deck and lounge at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, known as The Top of The World Lounge, is absolutely breathtaking. The is one of my favorite benefits of Disney Vacation Club Membership since visiting this location is availably exclusively to Members. You are going to love it!

    When you are ready to experience Wishes Nighttime Spectacular in a whole new way, stop by the Concierge podium in the lobby. You will need to show the friendly Cast Member there your DVC Member ID and scan your MagicBand to show that you have an active Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation. He or she will then escort you to a dedicated elevator for this ride to the top. Reservations are not required, but please know that space is limited and can fill on very busy nights. That said, I have never been turned away. 

    Come on back and visit us again if we can help you with any other questions. We love to chat!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
